    About $900 million pledged by the United States to the Palestinians will be withdrawn if the expected Palestinian Authority coalition government between Fatah and Hamas does not recognize Israel's right to exist, Western and Israeli diplomats said Wednesday.

    During her visit to the region last week Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas against forming a coalition with Hamas that will not meet the expectations of the Quartet.

    Clinton told Abbas that Congress will not approve funding of a Palestinian government that does not recognize Israel's right to exist and renounce violence. She added that if those requirements are not met the U.S.-funded program under the supervision of General Keith Dayton training PA security forces would be the first to be axed.
    Fatah and Hamas are currently engaged in talks intended to reestablish ties between the Palestinian factions that were severed two years ago when Hamas forcibly took over the Gaza Strip, routing Fatah-backed PA security forces.

    Clinton discussed the issue of forming a Palestinian coalition with Fatah representatives, who told her that the new government would consist of non-affiliated officials whose chief task will be to prepare the Palestinian territories for new general elections.

    She reportedly told the officials she believed holding new elections was secondary to building the bureaucracy of the Palestinian Authority. The Obama administration is adamant in maintaining the previous U.S. presidential administration's position of boycotting Hamas. Two weeks ago Clinton said lifting the boycott would damage attempts to reach peace in the region.

    I don't. You can't force them to recognize Israel by bribing them with money...

    but clearly you can make them recognize israel by bombing the shit out of 1k+ civilians!


    Face it, DavidS... the ONLY solution is to offer palis the same democratic equality and state validation as jews enjoy there AND here in the US where your clan really had nothing to do with the creation of this nation.

    Shogun, it's pointless talking to this guy. He blatantly supports genocide... There's really no going back once your mind is set on genocide. = \

    Anyway, well, I guess it's positive: At least they're using the carrot... and not the stick.

    Indeed.. the problem is that people allow the DavidS types a blank check because they are afraid of being called an antisemite to the point that blank checks ahve been given to israel. AFTER WE SEE HIM CALL FOR THE EXTERMINATION OF MUSLIMS NO LESS!

    it's exactly like Charles Bass insisting that blacks CANT be racist. Of course they can. Just like JEWS can be racist and enact ironic state policies that mimic the purification of Germany.

    But hey... just as the zionists like to disregard palis because they voted for hamas so too will we see jews disregarded based on electing the jewish hitler back into office. They would not stand for an American Oath naming their aliegence to a White America but won't let the irony hit them on the ass as they swallow Liberman racism hook line and sinker.

    They've been offered their country an untold number of times.

    2000 Camp David Summit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And he REJECTED it.

    They don't want their own state. The sooner you realize this, the better.

    of COURSE they won't want a separate but (not really) equal state, dumbass. Again, the ONLY solution is a SINGLE COMMON state that your racist jewish asses have to share democratically with non-jews. You know... much like we white people allow here in the United "you can't name a jewish founding American father" States.


    Palisrael is the only solution for a nation supposedly influenced by the west. Anything less rides on blank check zionist racism. You know it. I know it. The world knows it.

    I disagree I think it would be an important step, but I think it needs to be on paper rather than words spoke in English to Western media!
